Make your Own Almond Milk

Almond Milk
Recipe

Store bought almond milk usually only contains around 2% almonds. The rest is made up with water, flavourings and fortified vitamins. So, why not make your own. It’s quick and easy, and you’ll be getting real nutritional benefits.

Almonds are loaded with nutrients and full of antioxidants. They are packed with protein, fibers, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats, making them a superfood.
